>What is this?
Saiyan Story is a series of Choose Your Own Adventure threads in which you play the part of a saiyan warrior. Decisions are made by vote, with the first option to earn three winning.
Power Level: 7,500,000
After learning the Instant Transmission technique, you teleported yourself to the ship Spina was taking to Namek. Spending the voyage with her and training your Ki Sensing, you soon arrived at the planet, where you ran into your old friend Nail. You told him of the situation with Earth and Mars, and he made you an offer. In exchange for collecting the Namekian Dragon Balls and finding a Namekian to serve as the guardian of Mars, you agreed to transport him off Namek. He kept his word, bringing the balls and the new guardian. You summoned Porunga, the Namekian dragon, and made your wishes. You wished for the Earth to be restored as it was before its destruction, you also wished for Piccolo to be brought back, sealed as he was before. And finally, you wished your son, Bardock, back to life. With all of that done, you left the planet, and went to speak with Arey, the future guardian of Mars.

So, I think this is the first time I've made a post on tg instead of being a lurking faggot, but I've been doing research lately on the opinions across the board for Tyranids. The consensus is that this new codex is a fucking joke. I've seen it played. It doesn't stack up to, well, anything. It's half assed for assault and shooting, and cannot tarpit objectives. So, I've been thinking...
Why isn't there a project to write a not shit fan codex? After looking at this, the only thing professional about the book is the excellent art. Everything else is very last-minute, amateur writing on the rules end, and it actually seems like most of the codex wasn't tested. They left everything roughly the same, balanced new stuff to the shitty(but superior) 5th edition codex, and really, just made the codex to sell haruspex/exocrine, harpy/crone, and gaunt kits. Oh, and the new carnifex kit as well. There really isn't a point to this codex because it's constantly outshone by everyone else in the shooting phase, has almost no ap2 ranged, and in melee, folds to pretty much everyone.
So were is it /tg/? Where's the fanbase attempting to rectify the big brown codex that GW dropped on us?
Extremists in Star Wars

So, I'm running a Star Wars game and wanted to run this idea by you guys. Basically, there's this guy who's wife and son died due to the negligence of an Imperial officer. Years later the guy manages to track him down and sets up this elaborate plan to kill him using a droideka, a thermal detonator, and a disguise. Do you think it would make sense to make him rebel affiliated? I've been toying with the idea of making the rebels versus empire conflict more grey. Currently, the group is just a bunch of low level hired guns kicking around in Mos Eisley.

Elegan/tg/entlemen! Eclipse Phase general because none in catalogue.
To kick this thread off though I'm going to ask a lengthy question.
I'll definitely be running EP for one group, but I may be DMing for a second as well. I need a campaign though as I just got home from a fucking long holiday.
>big group, expect 7-11 people
>'Younger players', as in, just finished high school
>never played EP before, never played a system more advanced than WoD (Hell, I introduced all but two of them to PnP)
>I only know three characters so far: A Murcurial AGI who's working for the extropians, an octopus uplift and a really patriotic lunarian
>They take the roleplay seriously but are very amateur.
>One player is made of win, quotes Kamina, is a fa/tg/uy, lots of win.
>Older group, young 20-somethings
>prone to metagaming and PvP
>Broke the Glory campaign. As in, fucking broke it. They didn't even encounter the exsurgents and yet won forever
>Told me I was 'too nice'. I temporarily became 'that GM' in response and between my poor form, slowly bloating group size (that I didn't seem to have a say in) and players who lost interest, campaign fizzled and died, however they want me to do EP2: Electric Boogaloo. The campaign that burned down was that petal one I don't remember the name of.
SO, what should I run, knowing all this?

My players want me to go old school on them. They think that means tracking food and two or three more gobbos in a fight. I think it means raining down hellfire and brimstone, spreading plagues, and being burned at the stake for the slightest ill word against the church.
Give me your most sinister dungeons, powerful monsters, deadliest traps, and cruelest encounters. I want vampire tentacle trees, golems reaching out of lava and pulling adventurers in, slews of burrowing zombies grabbing your ankles for skeletal archers standing on True Strike traps, and sealed rooms that lets air out, but doesn't let it in.
Bonus points for purely narrative traps.

>Says we should optimize because the campaign is going to be hardcore
>Send him PCs
>He says no to each one of them because "doesn't fit my setting", "too OP", "I don't like teleport like powers", etc
>Keep rejecting options until I play a plain sword and board fighter, yeah, from the fucking PH
>Today is Day 1.
>3 players have PCs that are fucking carbon copies of previous PCs I sent to DM.
>DM "Well, they didn't know what to do, so I helped them"
>Me "But you said no to those"
>DM "I changed my mind"
>Leave while doing pic related
Fucking faggot, I hope he chokes and dies while sleeping. If he didn't wanted me to play why he invited me? fuck, now I'm fucking mad.

This is why the nid dex is fucked
[Terminus Est] Competitive 40k—by hte Black Blow Fly
"Speaking about the codex today, a few things fall into place. One of the older members of the Stoke branch is regular play tester for the pre release codex's as he has a number of armies they use when the designers want to try out their rules. Well it turns out he basically advised the design team that the NID codex was far too week and he basically walked over their armies, so they kept adding and changing the rules until it became such a mess that they stopped play testing the book. The white dwarf article was done in the released format because it became obvious that things did not work. They even toned down the riptides load out and tailored the report so it looked as if the new NID's could stand up to the best units in the game. it was a lie.
"They basically ran out of time to publish the codex. To make it right, they would likely have to start over again, and the old one was already way behind.
"So somewhere along the line someone high up forced the release, the Models were obviously ready and the penny counters wanted a return, as it costs to sculpt, and they don't want molds sat there for another 6-12 months. The inventory was in supply or on order, so it had to be pushed out.
"Add to this that the reason we don't have the doom or parasite or pod was a hang over of the chapter-house law suit. When that went to court GW decided that they would not be making these models as the cost of the molds and time was too expensive. So the safest way to remove influence from chapter-house, was to make any of the disputed models obsolete. Remove them from the codex.
"We already had the design team at Nottingham give interviews saying they would put right the 5th edition codex, i wonder what they are going to say this time."
I tried to link to the website but kept getting "Error: Our system thinks your post is spam. Please reformat and try again."
It explains so many things
